Computex 2021 is now in full swing and Intel came out with two new processors as part of their 11th Gen Intel Core U-series designed for thin and light laptops with the i7-1195G7 and i5-1155G7 with Iris Xe graphics.
The i7-1195G7 is their new flagship as part of this series, and Intel said to expect "60+ consumer designs with the new processors" and there's nearly "250 OEM designs based on 11th Gen Intel® Core™ (U-series) expected by holiday". Here's where they sit now along with their specifications (source: Intel):
The i7-1195G7 is actually an impressive sounding chip. 5GHz is pretty ridiculous for it, along with the 12MB cache and the latest Intel Iris Xe, it should make for a really good experience.
With the press info they went through the usual bullet-points of what laptops with their 11th Gen chips offer but what was surprising was the game mentioned. Showing just how popular it is, Intel name-dropped Valheim saying they can offer "Impressive 1080p gameplay on new and popular titles, such as Valheim, with up to a 2.7 higher frame rate than that of the competition.". Nice to see they're paying attention to a great game. We shouldn't actually be surprised though, given that it's now sold close to 7 million copies.
Intel also announced their first 5G product, the Intel 5G Solution 5000 to power the next-generation of laptop users needing speed on the move.
